I am enquiring about my grandfather, Kenneth Edwin Richards DOB October 9, 1917. My father, Art B. Richards passed away on December 23, 2013 and never knew his biological father. Do you know if T/Lt. Kenneth Edwin Richards ever docked off the coast of Jamaica between 1941-1945? During WW2, he was stationed in an American field camp on South Camp Road in Kingston, Jamaica. This is where he met my grandmother, Philippine Hacker.

Any feedback or photos would be greatly appreciated, as I'm trying to piece together my family tree.

My sincere thanks,
Natasha Richards
